Also Valentine's Day is a little extra special day for me as, this was the day I was married so it  marks our wedding anniversary too.  We'll be celebrating our 11th anniversary.  "S" is a remarkable , loving and kind person and friend and I really can't believe its been 11 years. It still feels like yesterday. Ours was a love marriage and I was and still am a die-hard romantic thats why I wanted to get married on Valentine's day.  I'm happy our love story had a happy ending. 

  • 18 fresh Strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips 
  • baking sheet lined with wax paper
I have used Nestle's toll house milk chocolate morsels/chips

Preparation :

Wash the strawberries and pat them dry. Keep the stems intact.

Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler (one heat proof  bowl contained the chocolate chips and it was placed on top of another pot with simmering hot water). Whisk gently till the chips are all melted. Turn off the heat. Now Dip each strawberry into this melted chocolate by holding onto the stem. Swirl the strawberry and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl. Place the Strawberry gently onto the baking sheet lined with wax paper. Repeat the same procedure with the rest of the strawberries. 

Chill the strawberries in a refrigerator for about 30 minutes. You can see the chocolate coating has set well. Enjoy your Chocolate dipped strawberries and share them with your loved ones.
